The Pennington Studio for Dance and The Watershed Institute are excited to announce a partnership for the Global Waters Dances project. This collaboration looks to merge artistry and environmental consciousness by utilizing dance to shed light on the pressing issue of clean, safe, and healthy water.
The mesmerizing dance performance took place in and around the Stony Brook that runs through The Watershed Institute’s property before joining with the Millstone River. The natural beauty of the surroundings provided the perfect backdrop for the dancers to convey a message about the significance of safeguarding our water resources.
“We are excited to partner with The Watershed Institute for this extraordinary initiative. Art has the power to transcend boundaries and touch hearts, and when combined with a cause as crucial as clean water, its impact becomes immeasurable,” said Dawn Cargiulo Berman, Director & Owner of The Pennington Studio for Dance.
“The Watershed Institute is thrilled to work with The Pennington Studio on this project,” said Sophie Glovier, Chief Operating Officer at The Watershed Institute. “Seeing these dancers interact with our local streams and rivers to tell this story allows everyone to find a way to connect with their water and remember where their water comes from. There are so many important and simple actions that can be taken to protect water such as; reducing the amount of fertilizer and pesticides they use to increasing the use of native plants in their garden.”
The performance is available to watch at The Pennington Studio for Dance’s YouTube channel and on The Watershed Institute’s YouTube channel. It will be shown at the Outlet Dance Project film festival “Dance on Film” October 5 at Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, NJ. As the dance is watched by more people, the hope is that these ripples will inspire a wave of consciousness and action to preserve our planet’s most precious resource.
